I have used manure mixes before and they were great. More suseptable to contams but just sterilize a little longer.

Your mix sounds good but you will still need to adjust your pH by adding 20 to 25% lime. If you have a problem with it having poor structure (getting too smooth when moist) then reduce the lime to 15 to 20% and add 15% oyster shell. But with 50% vermiculite you probably want have that problem...mine never did...I stay away from oyster shell myself.

I stopped using manure based casings because of the higher rate of contams compared to the standard non manure mixes. Good Luck.

Before adding the lime check (should be on the bag) the PH that it is above 5.5.

Above 5.5 add a heaped tea spoon for every pan

If lower add a heaped sou[p spoon...

blah

I haven't sterilized my casing soil yet, this is my third time casing and they grow fine. It must be luck.
